Ujda Chaman 2019 Movie Review

For Chaman Kohli (Sunny Singh), a Hindi lecturer in Delhi, life pans out as a series of ridicule. From his students in college to his friends and even his parents, they all make fun of his bald patch. Moreover, his parents are in a rush to get him married before he turns 31 since an astrologer predicts that if he isn’t hitched before that, he will be doomed to a life of celibacy.

As much as he hates the idea, he still concedes to parental pressure, only to be rejected each time. Even his own attempts at finding someone almost always fails. Finally, when someone falls in love with him, she is not the ‘type’ he wants to be with.

Ujda Chaman Review

‘Ujda Chaman’ is the official remake of the 2017 Kannada film, ‘Ondu Motteya Kathe’. While the first half of the film tries to be quirky and comic, the ‘very loud Delhi family’ humor and the even louder background score are a sore point. In fact, the background score ensures that there is no scope for subtlety or gentle humor. And the first part hammers the ridicule of a bald person scene after scene to the point of exhaustion. In the second half, the film mostly plays out as a drama and perhaps, redeems itself to a certain extent here by bringing in the message of accepting people for who they are. And looking beyond their outward appearances. But overall, it is the weak writing that doesn’t explore beyond the germ of the idea that makes the story flip.
Sunny Singh tries his best to fit into the role of an underdog and turns on an innocent charm. But for the most part, his expression remains the same throughout the film (glazed eyes and sullen face). After a point, it stops making any impact. Maanvi Gagroo has a pleasant screen presence and pulls in a heartfelt performance. Sharib Hashmi with a bit of role makes an impact. Karishma Sharma and Aishwarya Sakhuja are effective in their small parts.
Overall, ‘Ujda Chaman’ carries a relevant message, but the ride to finally get to it is a wobbly one.
